The inaugural Virgin Fest is heading to California this summer with headlining performances from Lizzo, A$AP Rocky, and Anderson .Paak.
The event, set to take place from June 6 and 7 at the Banc of California Stadium Grounds & Exposition Park, will feature performances from The Free Nationals, Major Lazer, Banks, Clairo, and Vagabon. Tank and the Bangas, The Marcus King Band, Ellie Goulding, Kali Uchis, and Jorja Smith will also take the stage, as well as Barns Courtney and Miya Folick.
This is Lizzo’s second headlining festival performance of the summer, following news that she’ll perform at Bonnaroo – becoming the first women to ever headline the event – as well as Osheaga and Houston Rodeo.
“By combining Virgin’s signature hospitality and ingenuity with a strong sense of purpose, our team built the festival of tomorrow, today,” Virgin’s founder Sir Richard Branson said in a statement. “We are proud to bring Virgin Fest to LA and to be on track to become one of the United States’ greenest festivals.”
Virgin Fest is aiming to combine music, innovation, sustainability, and inclusivity where fans can see their “favorite artists, discover new ones, explore revolutionary technology and party with a purpose.”Festival organizers have banned all single use plastics on site and have a robust renewable energy and solar program. Additionally, food will be donated to local LA homeless shelters in an effort to further eliminate waste and give back to the community, while also reducing the carbon footprint by partnering with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority to offer four free single rides for fans to and from the event.
In addition to the music, festivalgoers can look out for DTOUR, a surprise performance attraction as well as an interactive innovation hub dubbed BEYOND.
